Fashion Week El Paseo

If you follow me on Instagram, then you already know that I was in Palm Desert for El Paseo Fashion Week! And if you’ve been following my blog for some time, then you know that my husband and I LOVE Palm Springs! We usually always stay right on the strip in downtown Palm Springs (Alcazar is my fave place to stay) but since the event was held in Palm Desert, we stayed at the JW Marriott. We were only able to make it for the last two shows but ended up having SO MUCH FUN. I got lucky and was able to snag a media pass for both nights so I was front & center for all of the action!

Best of Saks Fifth Avenue

Friday night was the Best of Saks Fifth Avenue show and the place was PACKED. And of course, everyone gasped when the now famous “Lupita” Ralph Lauren caped dress came down the runway. It is seriously stunning in person!

These are just a few of my favorite looks from the Best of Saks Fifth Ave show. I pretty much wanted EVERY SINGLE look that came down the runway! Then we finished the evening sipping on the most delicious cucumber infused vodka drinks at an after-party held at the Palm Springs Art Museum. 

Zang Toi

Then on Saturday night, I attended the Zang Toi show and was simply blown away by the gorgeousness! The show opened with the pale blue stunner in front but the “brilliant jade” pieces had me picking my jaw up off the floor! Mr. Toi is known for his eveningwear and I can see why.

It was so hard narrowing down my favorites from this show! I mean, look at that gorgeous jade cape. And how twirl worthy are these gowns?!? I OFFICIALLY have the El Paseo Fashion Week bug. Palm Desert + Fashion = the perfect getaway. Can’t wait to do it all again next year!
